Cardamine trifolia

Cardamine trifolia is an underused woodlander that has an advantage over spring ephemerals. Its evergreen foliage makes it useful as a modest groundcover. The rounded, three-part leaves are dark and leathery. Crowded racemes of small cupped white flowers grace the foliage fleetingly. Somewhat drought-tolerant and easy of care. A Great Plant Picks selection.
